This too shall Pass.

This too shall Pass.

When a wave appears, no matter how big or small, when it hits the coast, it makes a splash and it passes.

Similarly, from time to time, we experience unwanted occurrences in life too, internally and externally. Mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually.

We wonder, why me?

Why is this happening to me?

We need to realize two things here…

One, the waves are going to appear in your life, time and again to test you, whether you can stand in your path or not. Sometimes bigger than ever.

You need to stay patient, true to yourself, in order to stand through that wave.

Second, it’s going to pass.

Nothing in life stays forever.

Unless you let it stay.

Unless, that’s not happening, whatever it is, is going to pass.

Respect the Creator!

Respect the Creator!

This is something you might know, you might be aware of, or there are chances you might not know at all.

When a creator creates something, be it any field, art, craft, entertainment, sports, anywhere, there’s a lot, literally a lot that goes in each work of theirs.

For someone consuming or witnessing that, it becomes quite easy to just see the end result and probably, pass a quick opinion on it.

If the consumer has a different opinion, there wouldn’t be a second missed to have passed their opinion to the creator, irrespective of how it would make them feel.

However, for the creator, they have put their heart and soul into their work + lots and lots of hard work and efforts and ideation and execution and more importantly, time is usually spent on a single creation.

The creator has one goal from their creations, for it to touch the heart and souls of the audience, for it to provide value to them.

Although, what happens is, at times, the ones who do like the stuff usually stay quiet without appreciating the creator and the ones with a different opinion ensure to make their voice as loud as possible. Sometimes, harshly too. Especially on social media.

Without caring or understanding the emotions of the other person, without realising the behind-the-scenes of the work, that one comment sometimes breaks the creator.

The message that I’d like to send here is this, no matter who the creator is, no matter what the creation is, whether you align with it or not, whether you have a different opinion or not, first – respect the creator.

You need to have some empathy for them, empathy towards the person first, because they are a human being too.

Sometimes, the work may not have the expected results, but for them, they did put in the same amount of work for something was liked on a mass level.

Sure, if you have a piece of constructive criticism that would help them, do let them know with love and respect.

P. S. I did want to touch upon this topic with love and respect in mind, however, there’s another form of respect that needs to be shown towards the creator.

I’m simply going to go ahead and say it out…

Please don’t use a creator’s work for yourself, please don’t blatantly copy paste their work for yourself, please don’t try to remove their watermark/copyrights etc and use it for yourself.

Bottom line, if you do that, it’s just so disrespectful.


Always,

Always,

Always…

Respect the Creator.

A Sudden Jolt of Inspiration

A Sudden Jolt of Inspiration

Sure, there are people who are inspired with their goals for life – know the ‘why’ of their life and and why are they pushing themselves more and more, every day of their lives.

But, for most of the people, not everyone is inspired that way in life. They walk in the cycle of life – where everything is the same. (and they could be happy doing that too, that’s not a problem)

However, in this walk of life, something you must have experienced, either by consuming something or experiencing something or by having met someone, you could have suddenly hit this jolt of inspiration within you.

Inspiration to achieve something – to do something – to work towards a cause – could be anything.

Now, what’s to be known is this – now that you feel inspired – understand the why.

Why do you feel inspired? What made you feel that way?

If it’s actually inspiration, and you feel positive about it – then use it practically in your life to achieve what you want.

Being inspired is such a blissful moment because now you won’t stop – now you just want to go on and achieve heights.

Take in this moment, cherish it and walk the path of life.

Change starts with You

Change starts with You

Everyone wants to change the world, everyone wants to leave a mark, yet we forget about our own flaws and the dire need to rectify those first.

Change starts with yourself first, keep growing, keep upgrading yourself to a better version of yourself, better than before – until you reach a level where you can now bring that change to others as well.

That process takes time, but it also comes from authenticity and the courage to first do it yourself before you do it for others.

In simple terms, walk the talk.

#ChangeStartsWithYou

There’s always a way!

There’s always a way!

What’s on your mind?

Do you want a change physically, mentally or emotionally?
Do you want to change your path?
Do you want to change your circle?
Do you want to pursue your dreams?

Find A Way.

There’s always a way, even when you think that all the doors are closed around you. There’s always a way – you just have to find it.

Know what you are looking for – do you really want it – if yes, a way shall definitely appear. You have to be vigilant enough to grab that opportunity when it arises.

However, don’t stop – don’t compromise – that’s not the answer. Keep going, keep hunting for the path – you’ll find your way!

Daily Inspiration from the Monk who sold his Ferrari by Robin Sharma (Review)

Daily Inspiration from the Monk who sold his Ferrari by Robin Sharma (Review)

Book In Focus : Daily Inspiration from the Monk who sold his Ferrari

Author : Robin Sharma

Irrespective of having read ‘The Monk who sold his Ferrari’ or not, this book is a deep dive into the important lessons shared in that one – divided into tiny bits of inspirational material, one per day, in its entirety covering 365 days of the year.

This is one of those picks which aren’t supposed to be read altogether, but, one per day, depending on what date it is.

Why should you read the current day’s bit and not the ones before or after? Well, you should focus on the day you’re living, be in the present and not focus on the past or the future.

Coming back to the book, reading it everyday and also, at the same time, sharing it with others was a blessing in disguise, because the daily bits focused on such important elements of life – that it made it that much more valuable having focused on one bit – learning it, understanding it, implementing it – and then, focusing on the next bit on the next day.

That is how I’d summarize this book, it’s a good read, one that goes on for an entire year, and can also be repeated every other year too – because why not, those lessons have importance in our lives on a day-to-day.

This is also a perfect time to pick up this book, with 1st Jan coming along and you could then read it exactly for a year, start to end.

Pondering over the Past

Pondering over the Past

1 Day
24 Hours
1440 minutes

Imagine how much of this time is spent by you thinking about the past.

About your past decisions, about the steps taken, how you would’ve done something differently.

Its so easy to think about all of this – it’s easy because you can only waste your time thinking about it, you cannot change anything.

That wasted time is taking time out of your present, and that pondering over isn’t letting you decide your present and your future.

“Don’t let yesterday take up too much of today.” – Will Rogers

What’s gone is gone, let’s focus on today, let’s focus on making tomorrow better, let’s focus on making the changes that we can make today that will form our future and also be grateful for every decision previously taken, that has brought us to where we are today.
